French Friday episode 4

Spinach and Bacon Quiche.

The start:

The finish:

Couldn't find the card for my camera, so these pics are with the older mobile phone (it looked wayyyyy better than this).

As soon as the bacon and spinach went together i got really excited about this recipe.  Even the spouse commented on how nice it looked before it went in the oven.  My crust was not perfect, and I got a significant amount of leaking of the tart pan from one tiny hole in a corner.  But... not a big deal.

#winner.  it was good.  the grownups gobbled it down.  i will definitely make it again.

French Friday episode 3

It's French Friday and this weeks recipe is Tourteau de chevre

The start:

no, the wine is not in the recipe but was part of the experience, and yes that is my sewing machine in the background

The finish:

The boys liked this one.  I was a little less enthusiastic.  However, I bet I will love it for breakfast!  It was fairly easy to put together, and I was surprised how much the boys liked it as it isn't very sweet

Not sure if we will go for this one again.  BUT, it was worth a go.  and, hey!  now I own a springform pan.
